  • By default, a client can log on to the database through all tdpids to which the client is connected.
  • For Teradata Database host connections:
    • All COP connections assigned to the same tdpid should be in the same host group.
    • A LAN card can be part of more than one host group, but each host group must have a separate IP address. By default, each LAN card connects to only a single IP address.
    • Each LAN card allows multiple parallel sessions.
  • Teradata recommends that you do not define individual IP address connections or COP connections in the Teradata ODBC driver or the client host file. These connections override DNS assignments and could compromise the setup for REVOKE LOGON ON hostid.
